Orignal country contest cancellation Edit

The CCU, have finally been able to speak out regarding their frustration over it:

GPB, which we have to thank for calling it the end of the contest, is just amazing! Everyone who gets bad results, we're sorry, but is there anything we can do about it? We're not going to rig the voting for your pleasures. UK just announced their withdrawal, what... We can't be seeing this.. We have decided that a big announcement will be made!
